It is from a German-made sewing machine pedal. It appears to be 2mm inner diameter, 5mm outer diameter on the metal but has a 6mm plastic molded ring on the end...maybe to assure it stays connected? I would like to buy this jack and solder to a new wire, or find an affordable cable with this jack on one end to replace a damaged one. Any ideas? I've not seen this jack before.

It appears to be a proprietary plug, so I don’t think it is easily found (though it may have been cloned by (or for) 3rd-party replacement pedal makers).

If you search for you’ll find replacement cables for about $17 USD. Foot Control Cord for Husqvarna/Viking, Pfaff # 4130215-01

I'm not hardcore into jacks, but seems like some sort of default DC input like this little dude. Check it's conductivity inside and outside, if you have access to the other end's terminals, google those and do some tests accordingly. Do you have a multimeter? (might be unnecessary, though).

    \$\begingroup\$ Hi, your link is to a "normal" coaxial power plug. It doesn't have the unusual element of the plug in the question - that larger-than-normal plastic part near the tip. \$\endgroup\$
